The Bad Stuff: Conspiracy Theories, DES, Aspartame

ok, I am not one to dwell on conspiracy theories or the Bad Stuff in life. But I have been hearing a lot about it lately.

How I feel about the Bad Stuff:
Although it is not good not to dwell and spend excess time thinking about these things (Thought Creats Reality) is good to be aware and to hear some of what os going on out there. Ti be Conscious of things and ideas is a good thing.. as long as you can let them go and stay focused in the Positive.
Tomorrow I will be posting pictures of Flowers and Butterflies and Heats and Raw Foods again, like usual.. but today briefly, here's whats in my awareness:

D.E.S. - a co-worker is working on a doc about this. It is a drug that was heavily prescribed in the 40's and 50's claimed to prevent miscarriage and create strong babies. Was the 1st 'baby' of the FDA, passed without proper testing & actually with testing failures - tested on dogs and killed them and was released and promoted to women anyway. Now many, many children and grandchildren have side effects from this drug.
Facts from DES Action Canada:
· DES (diethylstilbestrol) is a synthetic estrogen drug. DES, developed in England in 1938, was the first synthetic version of estrogen.
· DES was marketed as a miscarriage preventive and a “wonder drug” that would make “bigger and stronger babies”.
· DES was prescribed to approximately 200,000-400,000 pregnant women in Canada from 1941 to 1971.
· There are approximately 100,000 to 200,000 DES daughters and 100,000 to 200,000 DES sons.
· DES daughters face a 1-in-1,000 risk for clear cell adenocarcinoma, a rare cancer of the vagina or cervix. They need special screening tests to detect this cancer.
· Pregnancy problems affect the greatest number of DES daughters. These problems include malformations of the reproductive organs and may lead to :
· increased infertility
· 5 times the normal risk for ectopic pregnancy.
· 2-3 times the risk for miscarriage and premature labor.
· DES sons have an increased risk for genital malformations.
· DES mothers face a 30-40% increased risk for breast cancer.
· At its peak, DES was manufactured by over 200 different drug companies under as many names.
· Despite scientific evidence that DES caused cancer in laboratory animals, DES continued to be marketed for use by pregnant women for over 30 years.
· In 1953, a randomized, controlled, double-blind study at the University of Chicago showed DES to be completely ineffective for its intended purpose of preventing miscarriage.
· There is no test that can determine DES exposure. Those who suspect should ask their mothers or other family members, or see a doctor with experience in treating DES-exposed individuals.

Conspiracy Theories - Here are a few interesting ones to ponder (but just briefly!!)
Chemtrails, Global Warming is a Hoax, AIDS virus created in lab (prob by CIA or KGB to reduce world population) the US is to become a Police State, Flouridation - drug companies will profit from a population in ill-health.. or because it lowers mental abilities and 'dumbs down' the entire population, Pearl Harbour was allowed to happen, Paul McCartney died in '66 and he is now just a look-alike, Elvis faked his death, JFK assasination, Princess Diana was murdered, Union of North America - US, Mexico and Canada joining, with Amero currency - part of global copnspiracy to set up NWO (New World Order) , Illuminati & NWO plotting to have mankind in a single world government - they use political finance, social engineering, mind control and fear based propaganda to achieve their aims, Int'l orgs such as World Bank, the IMF, the European Union, the United Nations and NATO are listed as fopunding organizations of the NWO, NASA faked moon landing, Flying Saucer crashed at Roswell in '47, 9-11...

Sooo many health related videos!!! here

Click the link to see the Aspartame video - Sweet Misery

After 7000 miles, and 25 hours of footage, “Sweet Misery” will reveal one of the most pervasive, insidious forms of corporate negligence in the history of the industrial revolution. The toxic long-term effects of aspartame are often dismissed as a “hoax” by the sweetener industry and at least five other internet websites.

Methanol [one of the breakdown products of aspartame] has no therapeutic properties and is considered only as a toxicant. The ingestion of two teaspoons is considered lethal in humans” (Monte, Woodrow, “Aspartame: Methanol and the Public Health”, Journal of Applied Nutrition, Vol. 36, Number 1, 1984, p. 44). Though it can hardly be considered good fortune to have an immediate reaction to aspartame, at least you are spared the potential long-term ticking time-bomb of a large array of neurological illnesses. These include, but are not limited to Brain Cancer, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Graves Disease, Chronic Fatigue, MS and Epilepsy.

whew, ok, I'm done. seriously, tomorrow.. back to the flowers.

Let's do the positive thing!!!
